History of the Ala Wai Golf Course

The original 9 hole Ala Wai Golf Course was designed by Donald Mackay and it opened for the first time on September 13, 1931. At that time it was the only municipal golf course in Hawaii. The second nine holes opened on July 10, 1937, and the clubhouse as built in 1948. In 1989 seven of the front nine holes were redesigned by Nelson and Right. When the course first opened in 1931 it was run by the Hawaii Territorial Fair Commission. When that commissioned was abolished upon Hawaii's statehood, the City and County of Honolulu took over the land. There has always been a great deal of pressure to development valuable the golf course land with hotels and condominiums but so far, Honolulu has resisted.
